Picking the Perfect Floor? Here are Four Common Myths About Flooring


Between all of the retail stores, all of the DIY-type shows on TV, and even word of mouth, there is a LOT of information about home flooring, and there is also a fair amount of misconceptions about it as well. All of this can be daunting, so how do you sift through the information and even the misinformation?

Well, we’ve laid out a few common myths about home flooring. We want you to be fully equipped when picking the perfect floor for your home! You can also check out this great article by Isabelle Bergeron of styleathome.com “How to Choose the Right Floor Material”, where she breaks down some pros and cons of different flooring materials, and some things to be wary of, like not skimping on quality flooring installation.

Now, we’ll be honest, there are some hard and unfortunate truths about the flooring industry, like contractors looking out for the bottom line, salespersons selling you on floors you may not need, and low quality product that doesn’t last. However, it doesn’t have to be this way!
